This book examines the rebirth of Coventry City FC from 2017 to 2020. Having sunk to the depths of English football’s lowest professional division, the Sky Blues were a million miles from the FA Cup-winning heyday of1987 and the glitz and glamour of Premier League football. After a decade of decline, the arrival of Mark Robins for a second spell in charge would end all that. The story of Rise Together: Coventry City Under Mark Robins is one that every football fan will appreciate.
